information on what happened after the death of osama bin laden. was instantlythe documents say an american military laboratory in afghanistan analyzed the confirming his identity. the tests were done soon after he was killed by a the washington post reports that these details come from classified information bin laden was killed at his pakistan hideout in may 2011. millions of americans are getting set to hit the road for the last long weekend of summer. if you're traveling for company at the airport and on the highway, but decent prices at the gas pumps. welcome back was that what you're the immediately for the church weather and traffic. >>erica: as we take a look at the san francisco city streets so far so good for 19th avenue and park presidio print they did accommodate a lot of extra traffic starting off at the golden gate bridge. we have to talk about public transit. full details on that and how to get around in our next report. >>james: back to the construction work being done at that news man. --new stand--new span. continues. kron4's will tran has a live update. >>will: you can s
somewhere against the united states. the terror plot is called, very active, led by osama bin laden's former personal secretary. u.s. embassies in the middle east shut their doors today and a travel alert is in effect for americans traveling abroad. devin dwyer has more. >> u.s. ben biases today looked like siege behinds across the middle east. in yemen, american troops ring the compound, patting down passersby. from western africa to bangladesh, a 7,000-mile security belt was pulled tight. leaving 22 u.s. embassies and consulates dark and empty. >> there's a significant threat stream, and we're reacting to it. >> u.s. intelligence has intercepted al qaeda communications about an attack on strategic significant american interests but the exact target remains unclear. >> we received information that high-level people from al qaeda in the arabian peninsula are talking about a major attack. >> one official told abc news the part that is alarming is the confidence they showed while communicating and the air of certainty. one major worry, explosives placed inside suicide bombers. we're concerned
the killing of osama bin laden,ut have things improved marginally in the past few months? >> it is difficult to know exactly. we can say with confidence that the two services work together quite regularly and interact regularly. if things have gotten better or worse, it is difficult to know. we have seen fewer drone strikes recently in pakistan. >> that was something john kerry was keen to stress when he visited. >> the point is that they are saying, we are trying to take the pakistanis concerns. they are trying to use this tool in a more irregular fashion, if you will come and try to use other ways and open the line of communication. the americans realize this is an important relationship, both in terms with pakistan, and what happens with pakistan -- afghanistan and 2014. with aowards 2014 fraught relationship with pakistan is in nobody's interest. >> when you are looking at the intelligence gathering, this seems to ask him -- this seems to have come from some sort of chapter, it mexico fund -- difficult for any mission or foreign national living and working in pakistan. it hasa very long
. unfortunately what we have learned from al-qaeda and osama bin laden taken out, once you remove a top leader, this is decentral i'd network. >> heather: i was going to talk to you about, but sticking with the drone attacks. 15 of the attackers, 9 were saudis on 9/11 and seven were killed in that strike. you touched on this briefly. what role or saudi nationals playing in the latest terror threat? >> there have been long term problems of islamist activism. people would know osama bin laden originated out of saudi arabia base. it's not a surprise there would be activists and terrorists that would come out of that area but there has been active training in yemen and saudi side of the border for a long time just like the afghanistan-pakistan border. so the flow is troubling. we would like to believe the kingdom of saudi arabia would be an active partner in identifying and stopping that just as much as the government of yemen wants to. >> heather: so the u.s. navy adding to the planes to the hundreds of millions of dollars of aid we've given yemen. is that the best to stop al-qaeda there? >> i th
you continuously say that osama bin laden was dead and al qaeda was on the run when in fact now you've closed more embassies than ever before in u.s. history because of terrorism? that's not exactly the question he got last night. >>steve: the extraordinary thing is given all the news these days, the first time we've heard from the president of the united states in a live tv environment asked questions of him was by jay leno. clearly the president, he selected the softball venues because they worked in the past. entertainment tonight, people magazine, got some criticism from the mainstream media but that's only because he wouldn't talk to them. he knew he had to go directly to the low-information voter on shows like this. while president is out banging his campaign for the economy, he went right to jay leno and he painted a picture where things are getting better and my policies, they're working. >> the economy is growing. the unemployment rate has been ticking down. and housing is improving. we've seen the deficit cut in half. health care costs are actually going up slower than the
in new jersey. that kid is stuck with that. or osama bin laden or sean hannity. these are horrible names! >> sean hannity, that is not fair. >> all kidding aside, one quick thing, i know stephanie wants to jump in. in tennessee, turned statute of child abuse, it includes not just physical abuse, but imminent mental abuse. if you're going to name your child messiah or a worse name, a more challenging name, the child live withes it, not the parent. they think it's cute and fun. your kid has to go every day with that and get beaten up or ostracized from society. that's wrong. >> stephanie, dean makes a point. but dean, messiah is number four among fastest growing baby names in this country. so there are lots of messiahs running around. so, you know, when a judge -- forget the judge's rationale. even deecan's rationale, does i add up that the name would be some insipient child abuse? >> well, a worm hole has opened in the universe yet again in that i agree with michael. >> i was -- >> the judge -- the judge is clearly overreaching here. you know, sadly there is no law against being an idioti
happen as early as yesterday. nasir al-wuhayshi, once the personal secretary to osama bin laden, runs the yemen based branch of al qaeda that has proven to be the most aggressive in plotting against the u.s. bound airplanes with bombs hidden inside underwear and computer printers. al qaeda in the arabian peninsula has been battered by drone strikes. deputy commander saed al-shihri was killed earlier this year. but counterterrorism officials warn al qaeda in the arabian peninsula remains dangerous and capable of inflicting serious damage. while u.s. officials were stunned that veteran al qaeda leaders broke operational security by openly discussing possible plots, the intelligence remains incomplete. analysts who worked throughout we weekend still can't say where, when, or how an attack may be carried out. so the u.s. has been forced into a blanket defense. across north africa and the middle east 19 u.s. diplomatic missions will remain closed through saturday. and while there is no indication that terrorists are targeting the u.s. mainland, security is being tightened around new york c
as sunday, august 4th. wuhayshi who was once the personal secretary to osama bin laden runs the yemen-based branch of al qaeda that has proven to be the most agress any of plotting against the u.s. his group, aqap is home to an explosive expert who over the past two years has targeted u.s.-bond airplanes with bombs hidden inside of underwear. and computer printers. aqap has been battered by drone strikes. deputy commander saeed al shihri was killed earlier this year. but counterintelligence officials warn that aqap remains dangerous and capable of inflicting serious damage. while u.s. officials were stunned that veteran al qaeda leaders broke operational security by openly discussing intelligence plots, the intelligence remains incomplete. analysts who worked throughout the weekend still can't say when, where or how an attack may be carried out. so the u.s. has been forced into a blanket defense across north africa and the middle east, 19 u.s. diplomatic missions will remain closed through saturday. and while there is no indication that terrorists are targeting the u.s. mainland, secu
said osama bin laden is dead and most of his top lieutenants. there has been no large scale attacks on the united states and homeland is more secure. in summary, we're safer because of our efforts, but would you say that is not true? >> i think what we've seen from this administration is a willingness to look the other way. we pretend like al-qaeda is on the run. it's not just benghazi that we saw these problems in. mali has been developing as a strong hold for terrorists for quite a long time. the french are the ones who actually had to step up and do something bit. the united states was unwilling. you know it's really bad when the french are leading the charge and the united states is pretending there is no war to fight. >> heather: and this threat is focused on yemen, why? >> that is also a hub right now. there is probably some very real intelligence. we obviously are not privy to that intelligence, but those who are understanding that on daily basis have to make the decisions. i don't have a problem with trying to react to shut down an embassy or consulate to protect americans.
. one official calls it a very active plot, led by osama bin laden's personal secretary. they have been tracking chatter, but in recent days one official said a lot started blinking red. so now look at the map. every embassy that's supposed to be open right now is shut, and right in the middle cairo. americans here keeping their heads down. >> keep as low a profile as i can. obviously i'm a sizable guy that looks like what i am, an american. and that said, i don't walk into harm's way intentionally. avoid large crowds where i can. >> meanwhile, president obama's top military advisor and chairman of the giants chiefs of staff, general martin dempsey, said the threats intercepted are significant and officials are taking the threats seriously. on" this week "he sat down in an exclusive interview with martha raditz. he said how a possible terrorist attack could be carried out, he said the threats appear to be far reaching. >> a significant threat strain and we are reacting to it. >> is the threat to blow up an embassy, consulate or something else? >> that part is unspecified burke the inten
tower rises above the new york skyline and al qaeda's on the path to defeat and osama bin laden is dead. >> let's bring in cnn security analyst peter bergen. peter, you heard the president say last fall that al qaeda was on the path to defeat but now you see this. is this a result of a reorganization of al qaeda? does it appear as though it is still a threat or even more so of a threat than it once was even with the removal of bin laden and several of the lieutenants? >> well, fredericka, al qaeda hasn't attacked the united states since 9/11. since july 7th, 2005.the west - and under the obama administration, almost the entire top leadership is either killed in drone strikes or in the case of bin laden killed in a navy s.e.a.l. raid and the documents recovered from the bin laden compound paint an organization that well under the pressures they were under and thinking of moving from western pakistan where all the drones are concentrated in to a remote area of afghanistan, a web of the al qaeda brand has been tarnished by the actions of al qaeda in iraq, et cetera, et cetera. so that port
who took over after osama bin laden's death and the leader of the yemen based group. >> al-qaida still has some meaning with a common figure head leader in this case he's trying to be an operational leader. >> reporter: increased barricades are now in place against the heavily guarded mission. and although yemeni officials say they've disrupted a number of attacks already, there's been drone strikes. four suspected military leaders were killed today. the state department says secretary kerry spoke to yemen's president last night. president obama met with yemen's president just last thursday. also adding to the escalated level is the upcoming september 11 anniversary. >> we are at war and if we don't treat it as war we will lose. >>> today the u.s. filed its first criminal charges in the deadly terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi libya. the attack killed u.s. ambassador chris stevens, a uc hastings allumn along with three other americans. federal officials say charges were filed in connection with last year's attack. sources named one of the individuals as a libyan malitia l
made that announcement on al qaedas' web site. he was reported by an aid to osama bin laden and became the ahead of an affiliate after he tunnelinged out of a prison in yemen. the terror leader did not say how he would free those imprisoned members but al qaeda has claimed responsibility for simultaneous raids on two iraq prisons, reportedly setting free more than 500 inmates. his us replacement were also part hoff the intelligence that caused the u.s. to close 19 embassies last week, but the one in yemen re-opened yet. -young -- robert young understands the situation. >> civil war started in the mid-'90s in the northern and southern part broke away and battled way. we're getting involved in a tribal conflict, much like you see in pakistan, under the guise of fighting terrorism. so of the 600 people we killed, just with drones. only 50 of those would we classified as terrorist. so there's a lot of killing going on in the air and on the ground. >> shepard: explain more how this works and what the end game is. >> well, right now, we're faced with a core group of people from saudi arabia
other than osama bin laden's successor. a shutdown has been extended. 19 american diplomatic embassies in the middle east and africa will remain closed for the rest of this week. chris lawrence is joining us now, he's got more on the threat, the u.s. response. what's the latest? >> reporter: local security teams have installed extra blast walls outside some american embassies and a newly formed quick reaction team of 500 marines is now ready to deploy within four hours from its base in spain. while u.s. officials still don't know if it involves embassies or planes, trains or bases, it's clear why they're telling the americans to take it seriously. the cascade of warnings was triggered by intercepted communication, which is now being revealed as a direct order from al qaeda's leader. cnn has learned he ordered his new deputy in yemen to basically do something and launch an attack. that deputy high on the u.s. target list. along with another yemeni, al qaeda's master bomb maker. >> the threat emanates from and maybe focused on occurring in the arabian peninsula rather, but it could poten
been issued since the u.s. braced for retaliation after american special operations killed osama bin laden two years ago. this time, multiple sources tell nbc news the threat originates from yemen from a plot by al qaeda's branch in the arabian peninsula. the suspected target or targets are not just american diplomats in embassies, but western interests in general. we're told the threat is credible, serious and time for now the tail end of ramadan. the location is believed to be in yemen, but some u.s. officials worried plotters could try to strike beyond that country and initiated a blanket, catch-all response. >> this is a serious threat, but it should be noted in light of what happened in benghazi that officials are taking no chances whatsoever. >> reporter: so why al qaeda in yemen? it has a core group of skilled bomb makers and propagandists who operate in areas where the government has little authority. the group is motivated and aggressive and under attack. last month one of the top leaders was killed in a drone attack. the group wants revenge. but when? u.s. officials have to
qaeda. we often saw owe osama bin laden putting pressure on affiliates in different places to carry out attacks but the final word on something like this is going to come from the people on the ground, the people in yemen, people like wuahyshi for the reason we're seeing today. communication back and forth between yemen and pakistan is easily intercepted. >> warner: and that probably explains the intensified u.s. drone strikes in yemen over the past week. finally, how aggressively is the government of yemen and this new president going after a.q.a.p. both on its own and in concert with the u.s.? >> right. well the new government under president hadi who was just in the u.s. last week meeting with president obama, president hadi has given the u.s. a green light to carry out strikes in a variety of different places at the times of the u.s. choosing. he's doing this because he has a lack of domestic support within yemen. so he needs the u.s. to make up for that lack of domestic support. so there's an open communication which is much different now than it was from when the former president
blamed osama bin laden. i cursed him under my breath. i got on the plane and we headed to florida. one week later it was time to now do this in reverse. you know that i host a daily morning program here in philadelphia. what you may not know is that each of our homes are also wired for sound. and so when in florida for spring break it's a vacation for the family, but i'm loathe to be off the air. i have a studio in our place in florida and i remain on the air. there is a piece of electronic equipment that allows me to be on the air, a comrex matrix. if you didn't know what it was you would be puzzled by it. it's an electronic device that looks menacing. we had technical problems while i was in florida that week. and our engineer said, bring home the matrix. now in coming home from florida -- you see where this is going, i'm traveling with the cloth briefcase. i have read the book. i leave it in florida and inside now goes the comrex matrix. we arrive at the fort myers airport, check in curb side, there is a repeat of what transpired in atlantic city. in other words, the person says whi
by surprise. da-da-da-da-da. osama bin laden was taken by surprise. saddam hussein was taken by surprise. anthony weiner was taken by surprise. you punked out. - i did not punk out. we're going to have to agree to disagree on that one. but i will have you know that i had plans that night. i was going to go out with sophia. - that italian woman? - yes! - you've been trying to go out with her for three months. - uh! - why would you cancel a date with her to go to a baseball game? - because you had two diamond club tickets. i mean, i may get another chance with this chick. when's the next time i'm going to have a crack at those seats? - i'm sorry, man. - no, you're not. you're apologizing. but if i'm not able to hook up with sophia again, then you'll be sorry. - come on, man. what are you-- - what is up with this stupid website? how are we supposed to listen to the radio when we can't even get it on our computer? - i know, but don't worry; dad said he'll be back soon. - hey, guys. - hi, dad. - i just want you to know... that your problems are solved. - he's just-- - that's great. - bam! ha
but the country's capacity for self-inflself-infl icted damage must have astounded even osama bin laden and he points out there is always a nightmare for example of acquiring, terrorists acquiring weapons of mass distraction but nothing would give the terrorists and a greater satisfaction than we focus obsessively on the remote possibility and restrict their lives and liberties accordingly. >> guest: i think this is always a difficult debate. i think if we step back and look at it since 9/11 the united states even though we are one of the most open and free countries has remained frankly open and free. we have continued to have super bowls and have continued to have people travel abroad. we have robust trade with our allies around the world. so this type of limited action i would use the analogy is like a hurricane. we have weather forecast that says there is going to be a storm and we are battening down the hatches and if you live in these places as the storm passes , great but this administration is leaning forward in a way that i think is professionally responsible and they are being advise
a sense of urgery. the one-time personal secretary to osama bin laden runs the yemen-based branch of al qaeda. his group, aqap has proven to be the most aggressive in plotting against american targets. they are home to an explosives expert who targeted u.s.-bound airplanes with bombs hidden inside underwear and computer printers. aqap has been hit hard by sveral u.s. drone strikes, one of which killed their deputy commander earlier this year. still officials warn aqap remains dangerous and capable of inflicting serious damage. on monday the white house with this message. >> we believe it's significant and we are taking it seriously for that reason. >> reporter: the intelligence remains incomplete. u.s. officials stunned at the veteran al qaeda leaders openly discuss possible plots but they still can't say where, when or how an attack will be carried out. counter-terrorism official phil mudd said publicity around the threat could delay potential attacks. >> people who take the step to contemplate the murder of innocents for political cause don't turn back. if we don't take them off the b
don't see how a president who ran for his second term boasting about how he got osama bin laden, one bullet to the head and another to the heart has any grounds to quarrel with the concept. but the white house does not seem to be on board with that suggestion. here is jay carney at the press briefing. >> the president weighs his options. does he want to take out asad and would his death be a welcomed outcome at this white house? >> i appreciate the question and i want to make clear that the opgs we're considering are not about regime change. they are about responding to clear violation of an international standard that prohibits the use of chemical weapons. jon: brett stephens jon:s us now. you think jay is wrong. >> yes. and i think what we risk doing is an operation that puts the u.s. airmen, soldiers and sailors potentially in harm's way to accomplish very little. you don't undertake a military strike unless you have a genuine military objective. you don't undertake military strikes just to make a political statement or vindicate the president's threat from last year and earlier t
reportedly in the documents leaked by snowden, new revelations about osama bin laden's death. they show that the military conducted a dna test at a lab in afghanistan to confirm bin laden's identity after he was killed. last year, the pentagon said it could find no record of such files. >>> and supporters of legalizing marijuana are cheering the obama administration's decision not to challenge the laws in washington and colorado. so, that means that people in those states can use weed and get a license to grow. but they must keep it away from children as well as federal property. >>> and the irs has announced a new tax rules for same-sex couples. if those couples are legally married, no matter where they live, they will now be able to file joint tax returns. >>> a terrifying scene at this apartment building. a boy falls. he is dangling off a balcony. you see the police officer, scaling the balcony. no hesitation, risking his life, climbing out to join the boy, leading him to safety. the crowd in the street joining in applause. >>> are you ready to take the ultimate plunge? this is the w
fiscal year. >> they show how the u.s. used every tool of surveillance to find osama bin laden. in the months before the raid satellites gathered more than 387 images of the compound and an advanced stealth drone flew over pakistan to eavesdrop on communications and a special nsa team gathered intel from mobile phones used by al qaeda operatives. senior correspondent john miller is a former deputy director of national intelligence. good morning. >> good morning. >> did anything in these documents surprise you? >> well, i mean i've seen these budget documents before when i was working in that field, so nothing jumped off the page. although it surprised me they were out. >> what was most damaging? >> i think you take in totality. first, you have to ask, what is this document. it's a budget document. you imagine some very boring excel spreadsheet with a lot of numbers on it. but it's more than that. this is the american intelligent community playbook. what every program is called. what exactly it's for. how much they spend on it. if you turn it inside out and han
that osama bin laden thought had the best chance of really being powerful and causing a long-term threat. the information is vague. it is from intercepts. although it's not, thank goodness, the meta data from the u.s. because there's no evidence of their being contact with somebody in the u.s. to be captured in that metadata. there's a reference in what's been heard to the enemy, not specific, which leads people to think it's probably the u.s., but could also be western europe. finally, there's some indication that what makes this so scary is that the chatter is going back and forth in part between al qaeda in yemen and core al qaeda which is loosely based still in pakistan, the tribal areas, afghanistan, maybe even the top figure in al qaeda now with bin laden gone, amman zawahiri. this looks scarier than some of the chatter they pick up. >> put this in a perspective over the past ten years, let's say. it used to be we heard of the chatter going on around the clock. we had a discussion yesterday on "meet the press" about the about of al qaeda to still strike, compared to five, six, seve
this or you are on the side of osama bin laden. but the media didn't expose this for really what it was at the time, and then you move on to the war in iraq, and, again, i -- i mean, i sound like a broken record, repeating some of the stuff that snowden is saying, but at the time, all of that talk about all of the lies we heard from the bush administration, it was the job at the people at that white house briefing to kick the tires and challenge the assertions, and get us the truth, and they never did. they never challenged weapons of mass destruction, to point out -- we didn't find out there weren't any until we invaded the country. >> yeah, it was too late. >> bill: everybody repeated this mushroom cloud crap from condy rice, as if it were true. and colin powell talked about this mobile missile launchers that they have -- he even had a drawing of them, that they could move ash the country, the whole thing. and didn't exist. and there were voices at the time, there were former un inspectors at the time, who were saying we haven't seen any evidence of weapons of mass destruction,
,000 afghani and libyan terrorists and housed them in sinai under the leadership of osama bin laden's former doctor. they brought arms by the ton from libya and turkey. and these people who were so peaceful protesters, they were armed to the teeth when they finally broke the barricade, went in there, they found so much arm it's like a country inside a country. >> we're hearing all these different accounts. it is sort of difficult to short through and find the truth in all of this. let me say that. i'm going to come back to you in a minute. jack tapper, to you, big news today. we heard from president obama as martha's vineyard. he's away. he addresses egypt specifically. do you think this was something he had to do at this point. >> i think so. especially after the smoke cleared as one senior administration official put it to me. and the true extent of the violence was known yesterday, brooke, as you know. you and i were both reporting of body counts along 150. and then now we know it's more than 500. that's just the official count. who knows if it's even more than that as many people, many s
overreact -- i mean, osama bin laden was caught on tape saying he wanted to bleed america to the point of bankruptcy. and if 250,000 people take ciprol because there are tiny envelopes in washington, d.c., this is our own overreaction. it's self-destructive. >> homeland security and, again, i think the total budget's about $40 billion. if it had not been combined, maybe it would have been 32, 33 billion. so we're not talking about that large amount of money. in the overall picture, it has not been that draining. also you said where are bodies? well, if we hadn't stopped the london explosive plot, if we hadn't stopped the times square, the new york subway bombing, the -- actually, we got lucky in the michigan one, there's three or four thousand people right there, that's just three attacks i'm talking about, and there are any number of others that have been stopped. and again, i just wish the rest of the country used the nypd as the model because there's so much cooperation. if somebody does go to buy certain types of explosives, certain devices, that is told the nypd, and they can foll
years al qaeda core has been greatly diminished, not least because of the elimination of osama bin laden. what is also true is that al qaeda and affiliated organizations represent a continued threat to the united states. >> welcome back to "morning joe." it is 22 past the hour. >> 8:22 a.m. eastern time. >> that's when you're at your best, 8:22. that's where you peak. so nicole, it's so fascinating listening to the obama administration talking about the threat from al qaeda. they are balancing so many of the same things that the bush administration balanced. what's interesting is when they put america on high alert, you don't have everybody in the press going, are they doing this for political reasons. aren't you waiting for the first major newspaper to make that suggestion? i haven't heard it yet. >> it is interesting. i think this is a place where where else do we have representative king and jay carney saying exactly the same thing, singing from exactly the same song sheet. it gives us reinsurance about the truth of something incredibly dire and depressing, the threat of terrorism is
story like the killing of osama bin laden. before that you may know her as the managing editor of journalist review. next to rachel we have our next guest. she has gone over to the mainstream and she is eligible for the panel. so did jim agreed to step in and we really appreciate him being here. he is a white house reporter for the huffington post. also part of leadership on capitol hill. she has spent 40 years with the legislative and executive branches. probably a walk in the park for her because she started out with the texas state legislator legislature. again, we thank you for that. next to her he is the bureau chief head in washington, he started as a reporter's reporter. about how he likes we like to describe. he is a third-generation newsman. down at the under the table is alex mueller, who gives us a different perspective. he gives us a graphic perspective and he has background in graphic design and journalism. both were rollcall and for the hill. we have experienced much of the industry. those are our panelists. we are very happy to have all of them here. , i am not g
, is you have to knock out these people. president obama did it with osama bin laden who was not a leader of a nation, but a leader of the al qaeda movement. the united states did it with saddam hussein. one of the questions, and it is a difficult and collocated question, and i do not want to pretend this is a self-evident answer in terms of what to do, is if i thought is gone, what is an openm? that question. you have analysts on both side of the issue that argue on the key question, which is how strong are the relatively moderate rebel forces in syria? theypeople say because were not aided earlier, they are too weak now and there's not much hope that they could help others, like one of the strategys of the surge actually said that rebel forces that are relatively moderate are fairly strong and we could make a difference. david up next from north carolina. good morning. caller: actually, that is wilson, north carolina. i would like to thank you for being so moderate. your art to a great job interviewing him. it is still speculation that this has not used chemical weapons against his own
